Synopsis and Details:
Grave witch Alex Craft has forged an uneasy truce with the world of Faerie, but she’s still been trying to maintain at least some semblance of a normal life in the human world. So it’s safe to say that stepping up as the lead investigator for the Fae Investigation Bureau was not a career path she ever anticipated taking.
When an explosion at the Eternal Bloom threatens to upend the fae who make their home in our world, Alex finds herself in charge of the most far reaching investigation she’s ever tackled. And it’s only her first week on the job. With the threats mounting and cut off from half her allies, Alex can’t wait on the sidelines and hope the fae’s conflicts stay contained within their borders.

Review with Rating:
If you have been a fan of the Alex Craft series then get yourself ready for Grave War because not only is it action-packed and amazing but it is also the last book of the series. Acccck, I know! I wasn’t ready either!! This realization, of course, makes me a little sad because truthfully, I did not realize going in that this was to be the last book. Okay, I know that truth is tough to acknowledge at times but also consider that this means that the Author will hopefully be starting something new :D. Did I just make everything better??
What clued me in to the ending being nigh was that as I was reading this entertaining story, I started to realize that several reveals taking place were actually tying up overarching plot points. Ooh, everyone loves to see long-standing questions and theories being brought to fruition and explained. Much was cleared up, brought to a head, and there were even some, “gasp,” moments with shocking reveals! I enjoyed every minute but at the same time I didn’t want the story to end.
Which it did, sadly, but the ending of Grave War was quite satisfying (even a little swoony) and was worth getting through all the drama and fighting that comes with those of the Faerie courts. Alex had her issues – like not thinking things through – but with her supportive cast, everything worked out, as best as it could, in the end. Overall, Grave War was a wonderful series ending installment and I look forward to some day in the future starting this series again at book one!
